This website is designed for use by healthcare professionals, patients and carers in and around the Portsmouth District. It is a good example of a website intended to provide a resource both for healthcare professionals working in the area who need access to local contacts and pathway information, and also for individuals with diabetes who want to be aware of the services available locally and how best to use them.
The website is designed to be used in conjunction with the care patients receive from their diabetes team.
The site is a collaboration between the Diabetes Healthcare Professionals of Portsmouth and Hampshire who work in the community and the Diabetes team from Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust. It includes information and advice on diagnosis, care planning, living with diabetes, what to do when you're unwell and preventing and treating complications. It also includes special sections for pregnancy and young people.
